Abstract: Information of forest resources is powerful impetus to improve the productive forces and economic development of forestry, also is the key to realize forestry sustainable development. Extraction and charting of forest resources information depends on effective process to enormous spatial data. Geographic Information System(GIS)consists of a database containing spatially referenced land related data, as well as the procedures and techniques for systematically capturing, storing, retrieving, analyzing, processing, updating, and displaying those data. GIS enables the user to manage geographic data more efficiently and enhances the decision-making process for planning purposes. It has become increasingly important for spatial analysis of forest resources and forest sustainable management. The theme made inquiries about the technique of ARC/INFO 7.0.1 and ARCVIEW 3.0 in the extraction and charting of forest resources information. And taking Tayuan Forest Farm in Daxinganing Forestry Area as an example, makes a concrete exposition for the application of the new methods.
